U can get hugo boss suits at Harry Rosen for around $800-900
Hugo by Hugo Boss is the slim line
U can get Huo by Hugo Boss suits at the seattle premium outlet for around $550
I also saw Canali at Nordstorm Rack DT Seattle for $999
And Armani Collizoni for $899 at the rack

But obviously YMMV when it comes to outlets/rack

If the bachelor party is in Asia, I highly suggest Vietnam or Thailand and get a custom made suit. Otherwise any of the said locations are great

I know this may not be a possibility for OP. but Japan. No joke.

A slim-cut suit thats perfectly hemmed to your body shape for under $300 at more than a few large chain retailers. Quality as well.

Make sure you get it tailored, a non-tailored suit, regardless of price/brand looks like shit.

what do u guys think of TED BAKER suits? I picked one up today at The BAY for 50% off (reg price is $595 and down to $297.50). Are they a reputable brand? I really like the silk design on the inside and I chose it over Kenneth Cole and Micheal Kors suits since they were the same price.

Does Harry Rosen still carry Ted Baker suits?

Ted Baker is still a popular English brand and is along the lines of Ben Sherman and Penguin. Think Paul Smith on a budget.

Most of what u see these day is single breasted
Double breasted is more "english-style" I think
I just like to have 1 in my closet
Suitable for interviews, meets etc

double breasted has two vertical button columns, single has one.
its a bit more formal and has peaked lapels.
also it tends to look good if you are a thinner guy.

what do you guys think of Calvin Klein "X" suits? the top is $425 and the matching pants are $180

they cutting and fit is amazing when I tried it on at the BAY but I didnt buy it since it was more pricy compared to others...

I think "X" is their top of their line for suits?

I prefer buying good quality suits that are reasonably good fits and then budgeting for alteration than having a "cheaper" MTM offshore suit made that I can't feel the materials, etc. I have had great luck buying suits at Nordstrom's rack in Seattle, I have 1 Hugo Boss suit and 2 Calvin Kleins plus a few older suits and have paid less than $400 for the Boss and less than $300 for each of the CK suits. Altering the pants is around $30 for waist and hemming and the jackets are around $60 for sleeves and taking them in/out.

Good luck,
Mark
